The 2012 Chevrolet Volt is now available nationwide at $39,995, including an $850 destination charge before federal and state rebates and incentives. In an effort to make the 2012 Chevrolet Volt a bit more attractive, General Motors is reducing  the 2012 Volt to about $1,005 less than the 2011 model.

GM says that the lower price of the 2012 Volt model is due to the “wider range of options and configurations that come with the expansion of Volt production for sale nationally.”

In the 2012 Volt, GM added two additional interior accents of white and spiced red; and two new exterior hues of Summit White and Blue Topaz Metallic. Other standard features include a keyless entry with passive locking, OnStar turn-by-turn navigation, Chevrolet MyLink and 17-inch alloys with black inserts.

There are about seven option packages offered for the 2012 Volt electric car. The fully loaded 2012 Chevrolet Volt will set you at about $46,265 (including $850 destination charge), which comes with luxury amenities such as leather seats, navigation system, a backup camera, premium paint job and custom wheels. Of course, you can take the federal tax credit (($7,500) and state incentives ($2,500) to reduce the price of the Volt even further. You will need to check with your state and local incentives and rebates.

The 2012 Chevrolet Volt can be ordered at the nearest Chevrolet dealership, and you can expect delivery to be a bit late due to the volume of ordering.
